“Laura Palmer’s Theme” Becomes Brooding Post-Rock In The Hands Of Myriad Drone

“I can’t think of another show that has a song of that caliber laced throughout it,” Mikey Harland tells Welcome to Twin Peaks about Laura Palmer’s Theme. “It really transformed Twin Peaks for me.”

Myriad Drone, Mikey’s 4-piece post-rock band , just finished an emotive, drum-heavy rework of Angelo Badalamenti‘s haunting and ever-present composition. The ball got rolling when the Melbourne-based band’s guitarist and composer, Shamus Maximus, was re-watching Twin Peaks, making its soundtrack a subject at practice. The night they first thought about covering Laura Palmer’s Theme, guitar player Daniel Cross played a few bars. “Something must have stuck with Shamus, because after a long weekend locked in his little studio, he presented this.”

  1. This sounds a little like Akira Yamaoka’s score from Silent Hill 2, which is both an appropriate mash up and Awesome.

      • Well, I get the impression that people who work on the show are aware of this and other fan sites. Since you’ve posted it here, I think you may have a shot.

        You’ve done a great job. Could you work up a cover of Dance of the Dream Man? 🙂

  2. Awesome! Brought me into the shivery Peaks mood instantly and made me want to be melancholy (but not lazy).
